The Herndon Youth Soccer Tim Ryan Memorial Scholarships
In spring 2008 Herndon Youth Soccer began awarding two $1000 college scholarships annually to two high school seniors who have participated in the club as a player, referee, coach and/or volunteer. The scholarships will be awarded based on the applicant’s involvement in the club over the years, their application and essay. Recipients will be announced in June with monetary distribution made directly to the college or other post secondary institution upon proven acceptance.
Tim Ryan was a long time HYS coach and volunteer who died in 2007 after a long and valiant battle with cancer. He coached for his children’s soccer teams from microkicks to all-stars to travel, along the way founding some very successful travel teams. Tim fought the battle with cancer the same way he did everything else, with optimism, strength and faith. Tim exemplified the spirit of good sportsmanship and volunteerism that is prized by every sports organization and we are honored to award these scholarships in his name.
The application deadline is May 10, 2013
